I recently planted some bean seeds and noticed that the leaves of my seedlings have shriveled. Could someone help me diagnose the problem?
Thanks so much!
I am thinking that it's an environmental issue. Has your weather been changing radically like here in the DFW area? It's 65 overnight one night followed by a 40 degree night. Some of my plants leaves look like that and I attribute it to the weather swings. I bet that as the temps level off, the new growth will normalize.
Another thought... was the soil amended before planting?
Thanks for the response. Yes, the weather here in San Antonio was just like you described in DFW. I'll wait and see what happens as the season progresses. I amended the bed with premium compost before I planted the seeds.
Thank you Pam.
You are welcome Chitralekha! The premium compost likely did not cause the chlorosis or burn the foliage, I wondered if you had mixed wood mulch in and it had tied up all of the nitrogen or maybe burned the seedlings with uncooked compost or something.
